A Level Sociology

Getting a head start in SOCIOLOGY

Does society make us the people we are, or are we born this way?

Sociology teachers at Furness College will provide a variety of materials for aspiring sociologists to work on between now and what we hope will be the start of a new academic year in September 2020.

Students who have already expressed an interest in Sociology A Level, and any others who are just interested in Sociology, are welcome to take part in the activities, quizzes and competitions which will be posted throughout the coming months.

To take part, students need to visit our website – histpology.co.uk (the site has a secure SSL certificate) – and look for the ‘MOVING ON UP’ pages in the Sociology section.

The ‘MOVING ON UP’ pages directs students to

  • Specific and challenging things to read about sociological issues
  • Specific (and often funny) things to watch
  • Links to a wide-range of excellent Sociology podcasts
  • Ideas for thinking, arguing and writing about Sociology . . .

. . . which is where the quote at the top of the page comes in. Our first competition (submissions by email) challenges students to think of an answer to the question – what makes us what we are? NATURE OR NURTURE?
